Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Long Bay Coastal Walkway – Auckland, New Zealand

A favourite for many Aucklanders, Long Bay Regional Park attracts well over one million visitors a year. The park takes its name from the great stretch of beach that stretches between cliffs at both the northern and southern ends. The large park has plenty of trees, including coastal Pohutukawa, that provide shade for the many groups and individuals that visit for a day out at the beach.  At the northern end of the beach a pathway leads up to the clifftop and winds past farmland along the cliff’s edge to the Okura Inlet.  The return trip can be made  along a rocky foreshore at low tide, but can be quite slippery for the unwary.
